What’s the most surprising thing you learned while writing this book?

I am amazed at the rapid expansion of therapeutic options for patients with multiple myeloma. Despite its rare cancer status, the biotech industry has addressed the most crucial needs for curbing the high mortality and morbidity rate associated with this deadly disease.

This book is the ultimate resource for nurses and nurse practitioners caring for patients with myeloma. There is no other print material with such depth and breadth in examining the therapeutic breakthroughs and the management of patients receiving these breakthrough therapies.

About the author:

An associate professor at DePaul, Joseph Tariman began his research career in 2002 as a member of the myeloma program research team at Northwestern University. His first research study examined the QOL in older myeloma patients who underwent autologous HSCT. Subsequently, he has served as co-investigator in many clinical drug trials in myeloma, which gave him the opportunity and credibility to serve as a key opinion leader, editor of the only myeloma book for nurses, leading other clinicians in manuscript preparation, submission, and publication of the several peer-reviewed journal articles on clinical topics such as novel myeloma therapies, management of novel treatment-related side effects in myeloma, cancer survivorship, health maintenance, stem cell transplantation and outcomes measurement.
